Don Vito Collapses after Conviction

10/31/2007 3:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don Vito has been found guilty of two counts of sexual assault on a child. He was acquitted on one count.

Vito, real name Vincent Margera, who is Bam Margera's outrageous uncle on MTV's "Viva La Bam," was accused of fondling three girls during a public appearance at a mall in a Denver suburb. The victims of the sexual assault were 12 and 13. After the verdict was read, Don collapsed to the floor and yelled, "Just kill me now!" Deputies restrained him -- and took his ass off to jail.

The verdict on those counts is still pending. Vito will be sentenced on December 20.

HELLO PEOPLE: It doesn't matter whether these girls looked 12, 13 or said they were 18. The whole point is, that this pig has no business touching any woman or girl period. Don't make excuses for this pedophile and discusting pervert. I hope, well I know, he will get his while in jail!! Pick a wrinkle Bubba..he gets what he deserves. An eye for an eye..

When have you ever seen a 12 or 13 year-old girl look like she was 18?

Um, more details please? Lots of teenagers lie about their age, and to avoid getting in trouble. And "fondling" could mean anything from bumping into them to grabbing them.

If we allow paranoia to rule & rush to judge people as sexual deviants, then we cheapen the term and lessen its impact.

LOL i love how just because he was sentenced people already have jumped the gun. If anyone actually knew the whole story they would see this completly different.
1)There were no eye witnesses outside of the three girls or evidence such as pictures or videos.
2)There were 3 people around him at all times who also saw nothing of such
3)It was done at an autograph session with hundred of people witnessing
4)He of course didnt move anywhere from the table
5)The pictures they used at court was pictures from a bar party in chicago that had nothing to do with the case
6)He thought he was getting punked when he was being arrested because bam was punked the weekend before
7)What he actually did was slap 1 sticker on the chest of one of the kids and it wasnt on the boob it was right below the neck.
8)People make me sick and this world sucks how innocent people can go to jail for life just because some family wants money

What a sick SOB!! I hope the same thing that he did to these girls happens to him in jail. Who cares how old the girls were he should keep his fat perverted hands to himself. And who would want to go see him?? He's a nobody! Oh and if these girls were only 12 and 13 years old where the hell were their parents?? There's too many sick people in this world to just let your kids roam free.

Don Vito is a disgrace to himself and his family. Whatever age the girls MAY have claimed to be what gives this man the right to touch females without their permission?? Is it his assumption that he can get away with anything while riding the coat tails of nephews success or that he plays a buffoon lackey on Bam's show? Furthermore what type of parents take their children to see a drunken drugged out never has been at a mall? This is disgusting and I say grant the bastard his wish so he can cause no further embarassment to his family.

Don's nasty ass needs to be in jail. I hate the show too. The way Bam treats his parents and the way he rules their home is crazy. Bam's parents should have thrown his ass in jail a long time ago too.

April just spoke out on the Preston and Steve show here in Philly. YOu can hear her sid eon their podcast on Itunes. They are under the comedy section. April and Bam have a long relationship with the show and that is why she chose this show to speak out on.

If Bam excuses the perv's actions, who's to say that he doesn't follow the family tradition?
